Unexpected Beauty

 Recently, I took camera in hand wanting to capture beauty in an open field near our home. 
What intriqued and surprised me was that a thistle caught my eye....  just a weed.   

Unexpected beauty....
It is a gentle reminder for me to find beauty every day, even if it first disguises itself as a weed.

Wishing you a wonderful day, dear friends.
